A Gardening Book Review

By |January 26, 2023|

I am an author and a member of several author communities. I connected with an author who released a book in December that some of you might find helpful. We are finally at the point where we are considering vegetable gardening. I found her book to be really informative and the charts in back are invaluable. It's super easy to follow and available on Amazon. I left my review and prefaced it with how little I know about growing vegetables and even less about companion gardening. Here's my Amazon review because with the cost of living now might be the time to start growing food. And as an author I want to support other authors with reviews and also tell as many people as possible about a good book.

Thank Goodness for Pets

By |January 23, 2023|

Thank goodness for pets. Yesterday was a horrible headache day. Weather and pretty much every single thing on the spines of the first book. I decided to curl up on the sofa and read. It was a tow-throw day because my house was so cold. Coconut usually sits at my feet, but for some reason he knew. He slowly made his way up my legs and then nestled in the small of my back. And sighed. A big contented sigh. And I felt so much of the tension within me drain away. I probably should have written or started my business taxes. I could have cooked a big pot of soup. Instead, I read and was happy that my dog knew I needed him. Thank goodness for pets. Thank goodness for pets.

Thank You For Being A Friend

We have lost so many celebrities this year, but for those of us who worked with dog rescues and shelters today is the day we remember Betty White. On Betty White's 101st birthday, January 17th, everyone should pick a local rescue or animal shelter in your area and donate just $10.00 in Betty White's name. Last year the suggested donation was $5.00 and millions were raised. With inflation and the increased need to rescue dogs I think people should donate $10,00 or as much as they can afford. Every penny counts for these rescues. NEW PAWS is no longer open, but wherever you live there's a rescue a shelter a foster that is desperate for your help. Where will you be donating in Betty White's memory?

Last night we watched a movie called Dog Gone. It stars Rob Lowe and is based by a book on the same title. The plot is pretty basic. Lowe's son is graduating from college with [...]

Paw Prints on the Glass

This meme reminded me of a story in I Chose You. People ask me all the time about my favorite story from the book. I don't have one, I truly don't. But I do have [...]

The Vase

It's not the cold and snow I dislike about winter in Wisconsin, it's the dark and gloom.When we got here in March of 2017, not the best time of year to move from Hawaii to [...]
